Biography

Dr. Collier's ongoing clinical research interests include antiretroviral therapy, HIV reservoirs and cure, natural and treated history of primary HIV infection, and the effects of antiretroviral therapy on neurological aspects of HIV infection.

Her ongoing studies include collaborative projects to investigate long-acting antiretroviral drugs and regimens, third line antiretroviral treatment in resource-limited settings, observational studies to evaluate factors associated with HIV reservoir size and long-term outcomes in treated HIV infection, determinants of successful screening for participation in AIDS Clinical Trials Group protocols, and a variety of pilot studies of antiviral and anti-inflammatory agents.

Dr. Collier's ongoing collaborations include local projects with Drs. Joanne SteklerJames Mullins, Christina Marra, Sarah Holte, and Robert Coombs as well as collaborations with other U.S.-based and international colleagues.

Sample projects that trainees might become involved with include third line antiretroviral treatment in resource-limited settings, transition of care from research to clinical care settings, barriers for the conduct of clinical trials in resource-limited settings, determinants of HIV reservoir size, and impact of treatment of acute HIV infection on latently infected CD4 T cells.
